We have just received a selection of Thomas the Tank Engine Toys we would like to share with you.
Thomas first appeared in print 70 years ago and the popularity of this little engine and his friends seems to show no sign of waning. Many parents who are now buying the toys and books for their own children will have strong memory’s of Ringo Starr’s distinctive narration in the original TV series.
We have three train sets available. The Fisher-Price Flip and Switch Thomas/ Percy cunningly transforms from one engine to the other – two toys in one!
Meanwhile, also from Fisher-Price we have Thomas’ Double Delivery. Two in one is the theme again, but this time this train set has two different destinations and two areas for cargo play. Children can help Thomas on his journey and raise and lower the crossing gate as they send him on his journey.
Finally there is a 50 piece Mega Bloks construction set: Thomas and Friends Sodor Wash Down. This time Percy is the hero and washing the engine is the name of the game. This smart play set comes in its own tough zip up carry case. Whoo Whoo!

The last 6 months or so has seen Comaco begin to stock all kinds of branded toys which we had not considered previously. Hello Kitty, Lego Storage, Nerf and MegaBloks have all been doing well. However we are especially pleased to have a selection of great wooden learning toys from Fisher-Price.
All these toys are suitable for ages from 12 months or 24 months plus. They range from simple, fun, ergonomically designed pull along animal figures, to a selection of educational games which develop problem solving, memory and fine motor skills.
The toys have fun animal themes in bold attractive primary colours. In addition they come boxed to ensure that the gift of one of these toys will be a treat to be remembered! Check out the full range of Fisher-Price Toys at Comaco Toys Direct.

We originally made a You Tube video almost 5 years ago when our own website was launched. Having noticed that this was still showing up on Google we decided it was time for an upgrade. So here it is!
The new vid definitely shows the range of products we currently have in 2014. Give it a watch and let us know what you think!
The video was created using Windows Movie Maker and it is basically made up of product images from our website plus captions and a few extra graphics. It was interesting to compare the content between the old and new videos. Although some generic categories had not changed – Toy Guns, Knights, Cowboys, Army etc – almost all the individual products had. Perhaps not surprising after 5 years! Completely new however were most of the branded products so far discussed in this blog – Nerf, Megabloks, Hello Kitty, Monster High and Papo Figures.
We are quite pleased with the background music was downloaded from a royalty free site. There are also a few bonus sound effects for those who watch it through right to the end!

I must admit that Comaco Toys Direct has not generally gone in for more girl orientated toys in the past. As a male and the principal buyer I have tended to purchase things that would have appealed to me when I was younger, and the fact that I have two sons and no daughters has compounded this further. In fact I once had a long conversation with a rep from one of our suppliers who argued that girls’ toys were generally a weakness in the industry as so many buyers were men. I think far too often there is a tendency to assume that anything pink or fluffy will do.
This range of Monster High dolls is a little bit different in that, although they are feminine and fashion conscious, they are far from cute and conventional. We have eight different dolls with distinct horrific but stylish personalities. All are approx 28 cm high and fully articulated. They come with great outfits and a full range of accessories. The Scaris City of Frights Range has Ghoulia Yelps, Draculaura, Deuce Gorgon and Abbey Bominable, whilst the Ghouls Rule range includes Frankie Stein, Cleo de Nile, Clawdeen Wolf and an alternative Draculaura. As always we offer secure online checkout with Sagepay and free standard UK shipping on all orders
